Greetings from Wayland!



Since 1855, Wayland Academy has prepared young people for lives of leadership and purpose. The oldest co-ed, college-prep boarding school, Wayland offers students in grades 9-12 a challenging academic experience, in a safe, welcoming community. Our 70-acre campus is just 30 minutes from Madison, Wisconsin, home to the University of Wisconsin, and under one hour from Milwaukee and the shores of Lake Michigan.



Students at Wayland learn that curiosity is cool and delve deep into topics like robotics and Ancient Greece alongside faculty who love to teach and research with their students. In addition to 23 AP classes, over 30 electives, students take part in independent study courses to pursue their interests in close-knit seminars.



We look forward to seeing your application, to learning more about what draws you to us, and to seeing what you’ll accomplish on our campus.
